Bobcats Who Care Training Request
During periods of physical distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bobcats Who Care will be offered in 2 segments:
- First, participants will independently complete several modules on BlackBoard to learn facts about suicide, warning signs for suicide, skills for communicating with those in crisis, and referral options on campus and in the community. This should take approximately 1.5 hours.
- Next, participants will join a 1.5-hour live session via videoconference, during which they will engage in exercises that will put into practice those skills learned in the BlackBoard training.
If your department, organization, or office is interested in training, please complete a training request form located at the bottom of this page. We ask that you make the request at least 3 weeks in advance of your desired training time, and please know we may need to schedule for a later date depending on trainer availability for the live session. Once we receive your request, we will work with you to finalize a date and time for the live session. Once a date/time is finalized, we will request a roster of participants from you (names and emails) in order to give BlackBoard access for participants and send them an Outlook invitation to the live session. It is important that those who request this training AND participants are aware of that BlackBoard segment is to be completed within 5 days prior to the live session.
